Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business 2013 Client Guide Recognizes Condon & Forsyth LLP Once Again

The annual Chambers USA Client Guide, which ranks lawyers and law firms based on in-depth interviews with clients, in-house corporate counsel and attorneys throughout the US, has recognized Condon & Forsyth LLP once again “for its long-standing prowess in the highest-profile contentious aviation and airline matters.”

Managing partner Desmond T. Barry, Jr., was ranked by Chambers USA 2013 as winning admiration “for his extensive work as a lead counsel on the 9/11 litigation”, noting that impressed sources consider Des “one of the top aviation lawyers”; praised for having built an “enviable reputation for advising airline clients on contentious matters and aviation accidents,” Michael Holland was named for his work as “lead counsel for TACA Airlines in litigation stemming from a May 2008 accident in which an aircraft overran a Honduran runway”; Frank Silane, managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office, won plaudits for being “an experienced trial lawyer” who “handles complex, multijurisdictional tort and insurance litigation for airlines, aerospace insurers and aircraft manufacturers”; and Stephen R. Stegich, well known and respected as national counsel for Embraer, was commended for being a “quality and solid guy when aviation-related matters turn contentious.”
